Under MetroPCS’s Terms & Conditions of Service, all legal claims must be resolved by binding arbitration or in small claims court, unless you choose otherwise. If you want to be able to sue MetroPCS in court (other than small claims court), or to participate in a class action in court, you must submit a valid request to “opt out” of the arbitration process. You can do this either by calling 1-844-746-4691 or by completing the opt out form on this website.Back To Top
There is a 30-day deadline for opting out of the arbitration process. The deadline starts when you first activate your service. If you miss the 30-day deadline, your opt out will not be effective.Back To Top
Arbitration is a process to resolve legal claims outside of court. A neutral decision maker appointed by the American Arbitration Association conducts arbitrations. The procedures in arbitration are more informal and usually faster than lawsuits in court, and you can receive the same relief for your individual claims in arbitration that you could in a lawsuit in court. However, the procedures are different in arbitration and court. For example, in arbitration there is no jury, you cannot bring or join in a class action and there is limited opportunity for review, or appeal, of an arbitration decision.
